Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The student will learn how to classify the basic types of organizational structures in the subject Review of Mining and how to identify their strengths and weaknesses. The aim is to define and reproduce facts, to interpret acquired pieces of information in new situations and to compare them. Subsequently, the students will learn how to analyse information, connect pieces of information, order information according to importance and use it in experiments and synthesis with a view to definite recommendations.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations


The goal of the subject is to make students acquainted with the role of the base of mineral raw materials, with mining of coal, ore, minerals and construction raw materials at deep and surface deposits, with the methods of exploitation of particular kinds of mineral raw materials for the purposes of their utilisation. Furthermore, the subject is to provide the basis of particular systems of opening of underground and surface mining, selection of technologies of mining, disintegration, transport.
